Just spent a total of around 8 or 9 hours working on an EE282 problem set. It would be AWESOME if the TAs would at least proofread those garbled pieces of brain-suck before they ran off 150 copies.
In other news, I had lunch with the KOK team today since Adrian, mentor extraordinaire, is leaving EA to start his own game company. Hopefully I’ll be able to keep in touch with him since he was probably one of the best people I’ve ever worked with — brilliant but not condescending. In the CS department, you usually only get your choice of one. In a related thought, hearing a British person say “Naughty Dog” is a pleasure all should experience.
Today I broke the 1000-spam barrier! Woo and hoo. Some of my favorites, “B.r.i.t.n.e.y S.p.e.a.r N.a.k.e.d” (perhaps Britney Spears’ homely half-sister), and of course “New discovery ends spam the easy way!” Hopefully I’ll hit that 2000-spam mark in a few months. I can only hope.
As an addendum to one of my previous post, another reason that I would like to be a celebrity is that I can sell all my old unwanted clothes and people will pay big money for them.
Finally, I shall end with a quote from my favoritest red-haired Scottish singer, Shirley Manson. Here are her thoughts on Avril Lavigne:
“Avril Lavigne is a nice change from Britney as a pop star but please….I’ve had enough of the media ramming here down my throat as a bone fide agitator!!!! Em……no I don’t think I’m buying that one! And here’s a little tip for the stylists behind the “diva”.For god’s sake,take off the tie……..enough already!! For those of you,like me,who never bought into the so called,patriarchally orchestrated “girl power’ of the SPice Girls….or the join the dots,colouring book ” rock rebellion” of Avril lavigne; Get your eyes fixed on Karen O from the “Yeah yeah yeahs” because let there be no mistake……no misunderstanding……she really is the annointed one!”
